Moose 93.1 is helping the South Porcupine Winter Carnival have the longest fireworks display possible.
This Saturday between 11:00am and 3:00pm, we’ll be collecting cash donations at the Integrated Emergency Services Building at Northern College.
Fireworks are the marquee event of the carnival every year, bringing it to a close with a bang.
Committee member Joanne Hagger-Perritt reminds us that a show costs about $1,000 a minute.
“We feel that if people are going to go out and bundle up and find a perfect parking spot and all that kind of stuff, we want to give them at least a ten-minute show,” she comments.
The Moose is lining up prizes and other incentives. Hagger-Perritt says her group is, too.
“We have what’s called a Big Daddy plush chair. We have some wireless headphones. We’ve got some candles and wax melts.”
Members of the Timmins Rock and students from the college’s police foundations program will also be on hand on Saturday.
